To inspire students to learn about the scientific achievements of women and how STEM education helped them purse their dreams, these posters share the images and stories of women whose scientific achievements were instrumental during the Manhattan Project.
Download and print the posters now on any home or office printer for use in classrooms or after-school programs.
This third series features:
- Blanche Lawrence
- Floy Agnes Lee (1922-2018)
- Irene Joliot-Curie (1897-1956)
- Dr. Lili S. Hornig (1921-2017)
As we noted at the beginning of this series, one of the most powerful ways for a young woman to pursue STEM is to have someone encourage her to do so. STEM professionals visiting classrooms and events, engaging stories, and visual depictions of women in STEM show girls the possibilities available to them, and shatter stereotypes that only boys and men can make an impact in these fields.
